Throw the Rascals Out

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

The opening words of the Declaration of Independence are telling for our times as well. The United States of America has written into the constitution a way of doing those words without the violence that followed the deceleration. Every two years all the House and one third of the Senate are up for reelection. Every four years the office of President up for election. We have witnessed massive political turnovers over and over and the mess just gets worse.

Part of the problem is we want to throw the rascals out for their pork barrel spending but not the one who represents us. That one brings home the bacon. So what are we going to do?
We have an election year coming up. I take my vote very seriously. It may only be one vote but it is one vote. I want to make it count even if it is a protest vote. Let us all take some time to pray about those we vote for. I am not voting for an incumbent in the state and national elections. However I will vote for my self in the Bellemeade city election. Yes I am going to run again for mayor by popular demand. I am trying real hard not to be a rascal.
